are hoping the first of three presidential debates tomorrow night will be a game-changer for mitt romney. right now he trails the president in every battleground state. a new quinnipiac poll out this morning shows president obama has an 18 point lead over romney among women. nbc's brian mooar joins us from washington with more on all this. brian, good morning. >> reporter: for both campaigns this first debate is filled can challenge and opportunity. as denver gets ready for tomorrow night's first presidential debate, so are the candidates. >> it'll be a conversation with the american people that will span almost an entire month. we'll get to describe our respective views. >> reporter: romney is hoping to pick up a few votes with an endorsement from football great john elway. president obama is taking the personal approach to nail down support. >> this is barack obama. >> reporter: and like romney, the president sees this debate as a chance to talk to america. >> it's a choice between two different paths for this country. it's a choice between two fundamentally different visions for our n
right here on the factor. directly ahead, vicious attack on a california couple who put out a romney sign on their front lawn. harold with details. he has talked to the couple. body language takes a look at the debate this week. that should be interesting. those reports after these messages. ooho romney once again using a working person. apparently the garbage collector for the romney household in san diego not a big fan of the governor's. >> my name is richard hayes. and i pick up mitt romney's trash. invisible people. you know, he doesn't realize, you know, 16 tons by hand. that takes a toll on your body. when i'm 55, 60 years old i know my body is going to be broke down and romney doesn't care about that. >> bill: a nasty situation involving a romney campaign sign also in california. here now fox news anchor geraldo rivera. so richard is mad at romney, why? >> well, richard hayes is a really, the sanitation worker. is he really the garbage collector at romney's la jolla mansion. also a member of as me the american federation of county and state employees. wevehement opponents of m
but estimating that number, if you add that back in, governor romney is right, it seemed to be in excess of 11 percent. >>guest: the number has a lot room in it and it came out very favorably just .1 percent below when the president took office. now, i was born in salem, massachusetts, and i don't know all the ways that the fancy folks in washington, dc, do it, but this is a funny thing to have happen. it is not because i'm -- those that don't like to agree with me that i am old and senile but it is about asking questions, does the economy feel like the employment has improved by 6 percent in the last 60 days. >> how company people did you have under your employ at the height? >>guest: 410,000. >> you ran a major international corporation. >>guest: the largest. i know this, this economy doesn't feel like the employment approved to this level and it is just maybe a coincidence that the month before the election we have a public that comes out .1 below when the president took office. from an ideologue division of the federal government. i don't have any idea how they do it. they are filled with
points. >> this is the ball game for mitt romney right now because if he doesn't do well in this debate, it's going to be hard for him to get back in the race. >> reporter: both candidates have checklists. dos and don'ts for the debate. mitt romney has to avoid appearing detached, that he can't relate to average americans. his to-do list, the three cs, show some compassion, that he's competent and that he can, indeed, connect to voters. >> all three of those things, he suffered over the last couple of months, especially the last couple of weeks. this those three cs, that's where he's got to do really well. >> reporter: while they lead in the polls, team obama know that debates can be a game-changer. so the president will have to look strong and forceful, not passive, and he needs to avoid appearing irritable or impatient, and don't be long-winded. >> they're trying to get him into the mode of being able to answer questions short, concisely and to the point, and so it's much more like his mannerisms, his style and the way he comes across. >> the pressure is on for this first debate, and
's right, mitt romney getting the win in this first bout of three bouts in the presidential debates after he aggressively went after president obama on the economy, taxes, deficits, healthcare reform, and other domestic policy issues, and of course there were some zingers. listen. >> what we're seeing right now is in my view a trickle down government approach which has government thinking it can do a better job than free people pursuing their dreams, and it is not working. and the proof of that is 23 million people out of work. >> well, for 18 months he's been running on this tax plan, and now five weeks before the election, he's saying that his big bold idea is never mind. peter: both candidates back out on the campaign trail to of course key swing states. the president at a rally here in colorado this morning, then he heads off to wisconsin. governor romney and his running mate paul ryan will be in virginia today. we will be watching the polls to see if romney gets any post-debate bounce. dagen and connell, back to you. connell: peter thanks. still live for us in denver this morning. da
on the interweb. >> it is an ad. >> john: it is smart. mitt romney walked right into this trap. mitt romney was trying so hard not to be thurston howell iii. i think he's more like charles winchester of m.a.s.h. he reminds me a lot more of charles emerson winchester trying to be cool with hawkeye and b.j. in the still. i think we have audio from mitt from yesterday. >> romney: it is not so much winning and losing or even the people themselves, the president and myself. it is about something bigger than that. these debates are an opportunity for each of us to describe the pathway forward for america that we would choose. >> john: we know his pathway would choose the paul ryan budget which cuts taxes for millionaires and tries to balance the budget by cutting taxes 20% across the board. when you think about the wealthy, they've had it tough for a long time. it has been pretty tough to be a millionaire since 2001. the rich have been doing very poorly. what they need is a 20% across the board tax cut. and let's have less r
. >> softer mitt romney and don't hear outcries from the conservative right. they want to win. >> i've been so struck about how muted the response has been, not just after the debate, but even going back to where governor romney told nbc's ron allen that his state health care plan showed his empathy. that's the kind of thing that would typically drive conservatives crazy who don't believe using government is a way of showing empathy. andrea i was struck and i'm sure you were too, how many times did romney say that he was not trying to push some big tax cut plan. i mean, jack kemp must be spinning in his grave, the orthodox in the republican party has been that big tax cuts, especially for high earners, lead to economic growth. you saw romney try to move away from that view and i think it's because the obama campaign has defined the romney tax cut plan as a budget buster and as largely as a [ inaudible ] to the rich. romney is trying to move away from that and focus on what he will do for the middle class. but you're talking about not just that, andrea, but also talking about dodd/frank and the
don't have ohio. and right now, romney is down there by at least five points or so. >> jonathan martin, thank you so much. good to see you. >> thank you, andrea. >> up next, former bush speechwriter michael gerson on the new mitt romney and send me your thoughts on facebook and twitter @mitchellreports. this is "andrea mitchell reports." check out the latest collection of snacks from lean cuisine. creamy spinach artichoke dip, crispy garlic chicken spring rolls. they're this season's must-have accessory. lean cuisine. be culinary chic. >>> topping the headlines on "andrea mitchell reports" secretary of homeland security janet napolitano has arrived in arizona to meet with the family of slain border patrol agent nicolas ivy. investigators are looking at the possibility he was killed by friendly fire or tuesday. >>> a new york man was killed after he opened fire in a seaside hotel. he had been fired in a company that provides tourists from internships. >>> american airlines grounded boeing 747s to fix seats that might pop loose. the airline says a combination of poor design and overuse h
cleared their schedule for debate rehearsals. the president's practicing right now at nevada. mitt romney's resuming his practice sessions after a welcoming rally tonight in denver. both sides downplaying expectations. but cnn's chief political correspondent candy crowley who's moderating, by the way, the second presidential debate, noticed one high-profile exception. >> reporter: apparently romney supporter and republican governor chris christie didn't get the memo. s.o.p. for predebate chatter is to lower expectations for your guy by raising expectations for the other guy, like this -- >> president obama's a very gifted speaker. the man's been on the national stage for many years. he's an experienced debater. >> reporter: because this is a bipartisanly accepted strategy, like this -- >> we've expected all along that governor romney will have a good night. he's prepared more than any candidate in history, showing himself to be a very good debater. >> reporter: since you are supporting romney, you are supporting him, right? then you also need to lower the stakes for wednesday's first of t
. they support romney. millions and millions of people do this across the country. all right. what happened to them? >> the sign actually is pray for obama psalm 109:8. when you look up psalm 109:8. it says let his days be few and let another take his office. so it's a very clever biblical reference. born again christians. also members of the tea party. and people in the neighborhood. >> bill: what neighborhood is that. >> it's waneka, california. woodland hills, the more prosper russ, in san fernando valley. you remember grand reason to torino. half hispanic, half white. the couple gene and dework out of their home. they are private business owners. they really are hard-working, deep in their 70s but very feisty. as i said tea party members and they put the sign up. the sign was first vandalized with someone wield ago machete chopped to shreds. much more seriously when de, the feisty lady of the house went out to see the damage done, she saw a gerber's baby bottle, remember those from the day with a fuse in it filled with a liquid with a fuse in it looking very much like a molotov cocktail
thing i noticed was the president grabbing romney's arm. >> right. and talking his wallet. no, he didn't really. but he, you know, getting a little -- kind of semi hug. >> that's not the first thing i notice. the first thing i notice was the swagger that the president came out with. >> bill: he was bopping. >> his arms are swinging high. romney is not. he is very stiff when it comes to walking out an stage. then the hands meet. the patting goes on. the most interesting thing about that is as someone is trying to pat your arm demonstrating is he powerful. president obama comes across as powerful because is he patting. romney had the same amount of power going on. >> bill: do you believe that they actually think about what's going to happen when they walk out and how they are going to shake hands and their posture. do you believe they think about that. >> i think they know about it, yes. absolutely. >> bill: what do you mean know about it? >> they are told what to do. walk out and make sure this is how you proceed. one of the interesting dynamics was, president obama leads the way. romne
years ago, bret. >> that's right. this was by far governor romney's best debate. >> steve: ever. >> ever. he was on point and took it to the president and never left him off. >> steve: was that like the president -- worst debate. >> he had moments of you are likeable enough, hillary. this is the president obama comes out if you do what you need to do tie the economy to the president. governor romney never let that up and used $90 billion figure twice and not once. how it was worth 50 years was what regular oil and gas companies would have gotten and used it in the end to say that $90 billion could have been used to hire teachers. >> gretchen: what could be a headline and important with independent voters. he romney ironically talked about being the uniter and chief last night. >> that was very interesting. he cast a much bigger vision than the president did. >> steve: sounds like you would give mitt romney an a? >> absolutely. >> steve: what about the president. >> a c, when you don't do your homework you deserve a worse grade. it was obvious he had not prepared. >> steve: thank you for
with of the things about the president last night is for all of the many points that mitt romney had right up here, and he was able to effectively communicate them, the president had nothing. >> yeah. throw me a left one, jim, hurry up. it was great. and i thought mitt romney did a fabulous job of very methodically -- methodically dissecting barak obama. there was one case, it might have been during that exchange where he wandered from talking about the corporate jets, to medicaid, to pulling out some really irrelevant acin the case dote and romney was able to come back a, b, c, d, e, respond to each and every one of these points. and he just didn't let obama get away with the same kind of talking points and recycling that so many of the left dog media journalists have over the course of this campaign. >> gretchen: i think that's the headline of the night actually because people were calling this race over and people were saying that these debates might not matter. i totally disagreed with that, by the way. but to me, it was this opportunity for the american public to see both candidates on the sa
presidential nominee mitt romney are out west right now getting ready for their first debate this wednesday. there are a total of three presidential debates scheduled. the first one at the university of denver set to focus on domestic issues. it comes as the new national poll from "the washington post and abc news finds president obama leading 499% to 47% nationally. that's well within the margin of error. but national polls don't actually tell it the whole story because this election will be decided by a handful of swing states. both are spending a lot of time and a lot of money president obama is opening up some sleedz. this first debate could give the president more momentum or help governor romney reverse the trend and shake up the race. both campaigns are trying to down play expectations of what we'll see on wednesday. we have team fox coverage tonight ed henry on the president. first, john roberts covering governor romney's campaign for us. i know they are down playing expectations, john. but what are we expecting in the way of debate preparations now? >> in terms of debate preparatio
surrogates, florida senator marco rubio says that's the right approach. does mitt romney need to score a knockout punch? >> this is not an athletic competition. this is a debate between two money, one that is president and wants to stay there and one that wants to offer a new direction. >> reporter: all day long the romney campaign has signalled it will go after what it sees as another gaffe from vice president joe biden at a rally in charlotte. >> this is deadly earnest. how they can justify, how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class that's been buried the last four years. >> in the richest country in the history of the world this obama economy has crushed the middle class. >> reporter: romney's ad team quickly seized on the remarks churning out a web video. at an event in denver rubio piled on. >> those happen to be the words of the distinguished vice president of the united states mr. joe biden. no, don't boo. he's the best thing we got going, guys. don't boo. because in a moment of clarity, in a brief moment of clarity he just told us what we already knew. >> reporter
expectations. is this just that? >> you heard that from mitt romney. it's how you play the game. right. let's be honest. you heard the same thing from president obama sunday night at his rally in colorado. i think it also matters who wins or loses. both candidates in their final debate prep. mitt romney had the rally in colorado last night. he's hunkering down with the senator playing obama. you won't see much of mitt romney until wednesday night. same thing for the president. he's in nevada. he'll fly to denver on wednesday. he's got senator john kerry playing mitt romney in the debate preps. the president did have a chance to talk to a few people. he delivered some pizzas to the local obama for reelection campaign office out there. very nice of them. delivering pizza to the workers. he also talked about not getting out much. take a listen. >> basically they're keeping me indoors all the time. it's a drag. they're making me do my homework. >> wow, wow. this is john. he's doing his homework. >> also you have some new polls for us. where are we seeing the candidates now? >> nationally, this
, and that it will be a brand new race after the showdown in denver. no surprise romney's people ran right away from chris christie's comments pretty quickly. they're trying to lower expectations, which is how candidates normally approach these things. but let's suppose for a minute that chris christie's right. what would it take for mitt romney to win the debate and change the storyline of this election? 50 million people are expected to tune in. many think tomorrow night is romney's last best chance to turn things around. he's been practicing for the debate for months on top of the practice he got in the almost two dozen primary debates. but here's the challenge, romney has to come off as likable, authentic and show that he can connect with the voters. we've been hearing that for months, haven't we? apparently it's still a challenge for him. a piece in the daily beast suggests the only thing romney can do to change the race in a meaningful way is to get specific about his ideas. so far neither romney nor obama has been willing to do that. the voters have been left to simply wonder what's up. others say
's the latest on this particular score, jim? >> reporter: well, wolf, i can tell you right now that ann romney is about to take the stage behind me. she's going to be holding an event here in littleton, colorado, in a few moments from now. she's been one of this campaign's most effective surrogates and been very busy doing just that while her husband, mitt romney, has been doing debate preparations just a short distance away in denver. it will be fascinating, wolf, to watch the body language between mitt romney and president obama tomorrow night when they meet face-to-face as the obama campaign revealed to cnn, the two men have only met a few times in the past. flash back to 2008 and there they are. then-senator barack obama and mitt romney sharing a few moments on stage after back-to-back democratic and republican presidential debates in new hampshire. they also ran into each other at a labor day parade in 2007. a campaign source cataloging the meetings tells cnn these are just two of the three times the candidates have ever seen each other in person. flash forward to 2012 one day before the
on energy and education on the right way to fix the deficit. romney's approach is the wrong approach on taxes on deficit on wall street reform, on medicare and healthcare. >> eliot: on "good morning america," comedian jon stewart said he tried the same strategy in an upcoming debate with bile o'reilly. >> strategy that obama took, it is the rope-a-dope but instead of letting your opponent punch himself out you just get beat up. >> eliot: ouch. piling insult on top of self-inflicted injury, john sununu told msnbc's andrea mitchell -- >> what people saw last night i think, was a president that revealed his incompetence, how lazy and detached he is. >> did you really mean to call barack obama the president of the united states lazy? >> he didn't want to prepare for this debate. he's lazy and disengaged. >> eliot: wow. asked if sununu's comments had overtones, it seems that way. obama's senior adviser david axelrod thinks romney's say what works strategy will ultimately work against him. >> eliot: which had better mean
, keep an eye on the twicker running below. you may see your tweet. romney went right into a call for north american energy self-sufficiently, singling out coal as an endangered species under obama. listen. >> i like coal. i want to make sure we can continue to burn clean coal. people in the coal industry feel like it's getting crushed by your policies. >> lots of bozos went in and bought the coal stocks. all the coal stocks on. this wrong take away, people! coal's hostage to chinese demand more than u.s. use. that's not the case for the users of coal. the users, people. and that's why i said romney's giving you a heads up to buy american electric power and southern company, two coal building utilities that have to spend far less retrofitting facilities under romney staffed epa. i would be a seller of the consol energies and the peabodies in the strength. i take down union pacific. it is the carrier of clean coal. i would never recommend a company on this show with bad fundamentals. but they can be justified even with this sitting president. the pure coal plays are faltering funda
of the same. >> thank you. >> what we'll see in the next two debates. >> right. >> but certainly having romney commit himself to be in favor of regulation, not to cut taxes for the top, these are steps in the right direction if he actually lives by them. >> not just that, but the president was able to capitalize the next day. there were ads the next day using those lies. it's like a transcript. we read these things. when we read them we think lie, lie, lie, lie, lie. >> there were a few moments. there are some people who say this is strategic. one of the thing that's interesting in understanding the debate is the continuity of it. we keep being surprised by who barack obama is when he's just been the same the whole time. every time he doesn't fight hard enough. people are like, why isn't he fighting? watch this tape that our producers put together of critiques of barack obama's debate performance in the past. this is not last night's debate. take a look. >> a lot of the pundants are saying this was not a very strong performance last night for barack obama. >> hillary clinton is running as the
was the enemy of my enemy is my friend. right now we're rooting for mitt romney. should mitt romney become president of the united states, watch out. conservatives are watching him very closely. but for now he's their only horse and they got to ride him. >> so many of them don't like -- they hate the president of the united states, so they're willing to stomach some of the more moderate positions. >> absolutely. don't forget, for many of them mitt romney was not their first choice. but right now he's their only choice unless it's president obama. and given that, they'll take mitt romney. >> gloria borger, thanks very much for joining us. jack welsh, former head of general electric calls the new unemployment rate unbelievable. thinks the numbers were manipulated. you're going to hear what the former white house chief economist is saying about that. here's just part of what he has to say. >> jack, i love you, but on this one you've just flat out lost your mind. everyone has goals. take the steps to reach yours, with us with real advice, for real goals. the us bank wealth management advisor c
booster, isn't it? romney is right to feel uneasy about pennsylvania. a republican pollster in the state told reporters why romney is in such a bad position with pennsylvania voters. >> i think the bain capital ads that the president has run and the super pacs have run have stopped some of mitt romney's growth in the western part of the state with working class voters. >> romney isn't getting much support from those closest to him either. anonymous friends of the campaign associates savaged the candidate in politico. louie candidate. doesn't know the the room. not a great politician. and he's missing the normal guy gene. >> "i think romney is in trouble. and he has got to win this debate. i don't think it can be well, it was a draw and -- >> wait a minute, wait a minute. where did you get that from? what do you mean romney's in trouble? because of this poll manipulation crap? >> let me just say something. the criticism of the polls is craziness. i did some research on this today, which is more than you've done. >> some righties are losing their nerve. former comedian and current conserva
came pouring in. romney won. and this morning, virtually every headline, every pundit left and right gives a strong edge to the governor. but the new york times just couldn't bring itself to admit their guy had a bad day. they hedged. obama and romney spar over fixing the economy, they said. well, dare i call this a romney rally? i will tell you that stocks will open up today. the day after the romney win. "varney & company" is about to begin. you'd be targeting stocks to trade. well, that's what trade architect's heat maps do. they make you a trading assassin. trade architect. td ameritrade's empowering web-based trading platform. trade commission-free for 60 days, and we'll throw in up to $600 when you open an account. >> october 4th, a lot happened during last night's debate. we have 90 minutes worth of back and forth to choose from. we will pick only the best moments for you. mitt romney was the clear winner because he was focused and forceful. here is one example. clear example of romney attacking the president, the topic is energy. >> but don't forget, you put 90 billion dolla
in their sails this morning right? they had just about given up on romney before last night. they needed -- they really needed romney to do well last night. otherwise, they would have just folded their tent. unfortunately, they got the boost last night that they needed. because romney did breathe new life into the campaign. now for the next week, right it's going to be oh, my god, oh, my god, we gotta bounce now. we didn't get a bounce out of paul ryan or tampa but now yeah romney proved he's up to the task. he showed that he's capable of holding his own against president obama and this is going to re-energize the republicans. just when we had them down for the count we let them back up. off the canvas. should never have done it. should never have let it happened. all right. more calls coming up and we'll talk to reporter from the hill, niles standage in the next segment here of the "full court press." >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." >>and now to my point. that is a whole bunch of bunk! the powerful my stea
in a choice for the voters between the romney obama agenda. >> gregg: all right. carl cameron, thanks very much. >> president obama arriving in las vegas moments ago. we'll have a live report a bit later in the newscast. >> heather: meantime, controversy growing over the deadly attack in libya. into new calls investigation in assault that killed chris steens and three other americans. more questions are being raised over the obama administration's official version of what happened. top lawmakers are demanding answers. steve centanni is live in washington with more on this. >> reporter: one is bob corker a member of the foreign relations committee saying the benghazi incident is more bizarre every day. he wrote a letter to the director of national intelligence. it says 18 days ago the administration judged it was appropriate for our consulate to be lightly guarded. what has changed in libya such a short time that our f.b.i. agents, most elite personnel cannot safely enter the city? meantime, republicans kept up the drum beat on the administration's response and the president's foreign polic
romney can give all of these voters an excuse to vote for him, right? >> yeah, we talked about this yesterday on the show. if he can go in -- that's why i worry about all this talk about zingers, just stylistically. don't be someone you're not. don't come in with canned jokes. be who you are, which is the line he delivered, i thought, well in his convention speech where he said, i can't heal the earth. i'm not going to part the seas, whatever he said. i just want to help you and your family. i'm not fancy, i'm not exciting. i want this job because i can do a better job healing the economy, not the earth, healing the economy than he has done for the last 3 1/2 years. if he can do that, be confident, don't try to be slick or funny, it's not who you are, just be mitt romney, he'll have a good night. >> i think he'll have a good night. i'll tell you this also, mark mckinnon. we're going to hear about the 47% from barack obama tonight. he'll bring that up. i also think mitt romney will bring this up in the debate. something that was spoken yesterday in charlotte, north carolina, by
of the great political debates of our time and i think that mitt romney was right to join it with president obama. i think president obama's policies and his political vision are fundamentally that of french democrats, rather like francois hollande. i think mitt romney's are a traditional conservative republican. i thought during the debate he sounded actually, he echoed themes that you would associate with dwight eisenhower. so i think this is a great debate to be joined politically. i think that romney is raising real risk but there are people on the left who would like to see a stronger centralized government, not just as a safety net but all of these elements and you can see what the problems are. as margaret thatcher once said, the problem with socialism that sooner or later you run out of other people's money. melissa: right. absolutely. professor, thanks for coming on. have a great weekend. >> you too. melissa: so here's the question of the day, will president obama get a bump in the polls next week because of today's jobs report? we want to hear what you think. like us on facebook a
